You have a point with Ozzy and that some of his keyboard sounds were just awful,and to top it off I remember him being really loud in those small theaters they were playing,it was to bad because he was a talented guy and could really get there with Jerry when the jams got kind of strange.While I enjoyed the band throughout most of the 80's,I started to lose interest some after the fall 81' tour when he added Melvin and the back-up singers.I did not dig the overwhelming gospel vibe that slowly took root and found Melvin's playing to be really dull.That is a good It Takes Alot to Laugh,Billy D.,my favorites from that run were 2/17,2/23 and 2/29.
